Another crook in the tradition of Youngstown, Ohio. What a joke. Anyone who would vote for this convicted, liar, loser is also a loser.

Traficant has failed at more than not getting on the ballot, being a felon not included.

An ex-con will always be an ex-con. Traficant should not be allowed to run for Congress. SIMPLE.

Most of you 'Know Nothings' don't know that he was railroaded out of office and into jail by his own party. He called EVERYONE out that was dirty or on the take and they "convicted him" on a bunch of propped up charges and "witnesses" that he had never met. He is a true patriot and one of the few in that sea of corruption. His congressional speeched are some of the most honest accounts of much of what's wrong with Washington... and that was 7... 8, 9 years ago. Can you imagine all of the muck, graft and greed he could dig up on this present administration?? Get with history and get your facts straight on this guy, he'd be one of most honest and best men to have back in the District of Corruption.

Gee what a shame...now his fans will just have to vote another crook into office. Why would anyone possessing even a reasonable sense of propriety and integrity sign a petition to get a convicted felon on the ballot? Oh, maybe that's why he was short more than one thousand signatures!
